A Traveling Tea!



A group of us took a small road trip and went to Baxter Springs, Kansas for what we called a Traveling Tea Party. Actually, all we had to do was travel because hostess Bernice Moss served us tea. She also showed us her pretty Victorian house and talked to us about manners and etiquette in Victorian times. She had her house decorated with vintage clothes, hats, and some lovely tea pots and china pieces. The whole afternoon was a feast for the eyes.








Bernice also served a feast for the stomach too. She had cucumber sandwiches, lemon curd bites, a lovely blueberry coffee cake, and an outstanding cheese to served with a new tea. She likes English teas best, ones grown in China. She says they are softer teas. She also likes some
greens.














While we usually have tea at home, it was a nice treat to travel and share tea with another's pretty things!

It looks like a lovely tea. BTW, if you ever want to travel here, I also do teas in my home by reservation. A true English three course tea and I'd love to have you ladies join me! I'm off to look up her info for I think it would be a fun thing for a friend or two to do.

Hi,
I'm impressed Victorian House too.I understood you like english tea but in Turkey especially Rize ( it's a famous town with tea ) tea is very popular all over the world;if you haven't been trying it yet,I recommend you should try it.
